Two former Detroiters have opened a new restaurant in Boynton Beach, Florida.

A new restaurant that opened a short while ago in Boynton Beach, Florida, is named Detroit Eats … and already making favorable culinary waves as it satisfies the palates of many.

Located on Boynton Beach Blvd. West, it has spread its pride along the areas just short miles away like Boca Raton and Delray Beach.

More pride among these regions is gathered by these close-by sectors with opening of a restaurant which brings to mind a beloved city.   

Two former Detroiters… Dennis and Debbie Silber write about “Marc Tocco, whose father, Phil Tocco, serviced wholesalers at Eastern Market, and Marc’s daughter Ella, opening a great new restaurant with all Detroit nostalgia at 1313 Boynton Beach Blvd., Boynton Beach, and has called it Detroit Eats. From the moment former Detroiters like us walked in, we saw Detroit trappings in sports and memorabilia all around. Debbie and I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting long-time Detroiters Marvin and Adria Aronovits and Sherwin and Harriet Wilner, who have been frequenting Detroit Eats for several weeks. The entire menu takes you back. Starters such as the J.L. Hudson Co. Maurice Salad, Detroit Chili, Detroit-style deep-dish square pizza, Coney Dogs, Greektown Gyros and, of course, ending with Sanders Hot Fudge Sundae made our experience a most memorable one. Full meals are available. Visit Detroit Eats, meet other Detroiters and enjoy great back-home food. Seating and full meals are now available as is the carry-out section. Yes, Detroit Eats is a wonderful experience.”

WONDERING DEPT … Where barrister supreme Henry “Hank” Baskin gets his stay-young pills.

MAIL DEPT … From Rachel Kapen … “My son Avi and I went to Val’s Deli in Crosswinds Mall, owned by Val Izrailov and Carey Gerchak. Many diners seemed to know each other and it was almost filled to capacity and very satisfied with the varied menu and staff. Avi had Val’s delicious hamburger and I the tasty patty melt with grilled onion rings.”

DID YOU KNOW DEPT … Did you know that Buddy’s Pizza is not owned anymore by the Jacobs family … The need for expansion money was too great for son Robert, who took over when dad Billy passed on, remained as president, and sold it to Capital Sprngs and is now just an adviser … Thankfully the new owners didn’t remove Wes Pikula, responsible for the pizza variations, who has worked for Buddy’s over 45 years, or Lara Radke and others who have made Buddy’s a winner. 

OLDIE BUT GOODIE FAVORITE … “Waiter, this soup tastes funny… “Then why aren’t you laughing?”

CONGRATS … To Lila Lazarus on her birthday …To Marilyn Schuster on her birthday.
